Subject: Buddys on the Peddle
Fine, fine NRPS - goes back and forth in sound between tracks, but ultimately sounds way better than the Dead's show.
Subject: its Buddy on pedal steel
Subject: my 2 cents
Jac from Tucson has the set list correct with the exception of the spelling of Lochinvar.
The Dead came on at about 10:00 and played till almost 2 AM. Six hours with Jerry that I will never forget!
Go here for the rest of the show:
PS Thanks for the info, Arkstar.
Subject: Not Jerry on Pedal Steel
One hell of a night, regardless!
Subject: like this a lot
Marmaduke sounds in good voice particularly. Honky Tonk Woman is a real show stopper and got the audience crying for more.
Subject: Decent sounding show, but track list is TOTALLY wrong
Here's the CORRECT track listing:
1 - Bill Graham intro
2 - Six Days on the Road
3 - Rainbow
4 - Fair Chance to Know
5 - I Don't Know You
6 - Lochnivar
7 - Down in the Boondocks
8 - Truck Drivin' Man
9 - Dirty Business
11- California Day
12- Louisiana Lady
13- The Last Lonely Eagle

Hey man these shn files take too long to download, It's like takin forever to do this whole show, wassup witdat? How about puttin' this show up on the IA using VBR MU3 files? They are good enough for the GRATEFUL DEAD they should be good enough for the NRPS...huh? can ya? can ya? huh? Please....pretty please?
Uh, If you are using Windows XP the following is for you:::
....Holy Smokes...shn files? what? uh...if you are like me and don't know what this crap is, go here and download the converter:
It's easy to convert the shn files to Wave Sound files, just drag and drop them in the Mkw Audio Compression Tool application window and it converts the files automatically. Then you can open the files in Windows Media Player...make a playlist, etc..
You might want to keep your shn files, since they are lossless files from what I am able to decipher in the last 5 minutes I spent out of my life trying to figure out what the heck shn files are...damn audiophiles always chasing the "perfect format" for recording.
Okay now to the music...well, if you made it to this page, do I have to tell you it's great? Nope.
I remember seeing the Riders several times in the early 70's with the GRATEFUL DEAD, and their free concert(s) in Central Park in Manhattan, NYC.
Thanks for the Love.
Subject: NRPS GREAT EARLY SHOW
